 FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Officials say a padded room for inmates with mental health problems may become a new addition to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center by the end of the year.
    
The Frederick News-Post reports that the county jail's assistant warden Maj. David Ward says the area, called a "safe room," would be a revamped cell with walls and doors covered in a padded material to provide a safe environment for inmates with mental health problems.
    
Ward says the safe room will take the place of a cell in the holding unit.
    
In late April, the jail was awarded a $50,000 grant from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention to construct a safe room.
    
Ward says the safe room must be completed by Dec. 31 under the grant.
